...I do adore this Haut-Brion. The nose is heavenly with tobacco, earth, hot bricks, wild hedgerow, a touch of black olive (less than other bottles) with brilliant definition. The palate is medium-bodied, less precocious than say Latour or Mouton '82, more open-knit and accessible, quintessential Pessac that embraces that warmth of the growing season and infuses the delectable bouquet with nuances such as smoke, dried herbs, cigar box and a touch of rosemary. After an hour in the glass it is building and building. Divine. Drink now-2020+ Tasted March 2009. Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com)

Everything in the right place for a mature Bordeaux. Big but not showy. Sexy but not slutty. What truly great wine should be.

'82 Vintage. I am not such a fan of the '82 vintage in Bordeaux. IMHO, wines are tight, impenetrable and concentrated. I really struggle to find them appealing today. This Haut Brion is closed as a coffin but you can definitely foresight a spectacular wine, a monster. Color is deep, very far of what you should expect for a 33 years wine. Nose is dense, cola, mature cherry, meaty, bacon and smoke. Everything in a spectacular proportion. Palate is tight, firm tannins perfectly integrated, beautiful acidity and bright fruit. This is almost impossible to believe. Please unwind in my lifetime...... #hautbrion
